35 Weeks

         On Sunday, we took a pre-natal tour of the hospital. It was basically "this is the rooms" "this is what to expect" "this is what you should pack". Basic things that help alot.

           Yesterday was  my 35 week appointment. Everything looks good and I am measuring where I am supposed to. They say its the Home Stretch, but it's been going slowly. It probably doesn't help that I have that count down and my count down of "days worked" left. In the mail, I have recieved my Nestle baby package. It contained a diaper bag, new born diapers I am taking to the hospital, a bottle, and even though I plan to breastfeed, formula and glass prefilled formula bottles for the hospital. I really like the glass formula bottles.

          In some of of the baby clothes I have, there was a white onesie that had a giant yellow stain on it. For the past 2 days, I have been attempting to embroider a fairy over top of it. It's not amazing, but it's my first time doing it. I say it doesn't look too bad it you look at it from far away.
                  2 of the 3 kitties have colds. This pains me. I can't really do anything for them. Sneezing and watery eyes. I have to keep wiping Bandit's eyes. My poor baby girl.

                   Lastnight, I put together collages of my "Growth of a baby" from week 19-35. I might have gained about 20? pounds (I am seriously not sure) but the bump looks huge. The last picture is the last ultrasound I will get, week 18.
Blurbs from the boyfriend:
"As much as I say I'm not going to, I have a feeling I will probably spoil K"
"It's ok K! Your mommy's hard stomach will protect you!"


  1. If you really want to be successful at breastfeeding, throw the formula and bottles away.
    It will do nothing but hurt your supply and cause nipple confusion.
    Formula doesn't digest as quickly as breast milk so she will be fuller longer and not nurse as often.
    A newborn only needs about a tsp of food at a feed- they nurse frequently ;)
    You can do it! I know you can!
